How Do You Evaluate Your Own Elementary Program? Look to Kids.
Urzua, Carol
Children are dependent on professionals to find the ways in which the mysteries of interacting and conceptualizing in a new language can be unlocked. Child second language data and evidence concerning children's development suggest ways in which to accomplish that process. An elementary program in English as a second language (ESL) will be effective when the physical and human environments in and out of ESL classes are consistent with these developmental data. Understanding how children view the world and view language and their part in it can teach adults how to facilitate learning for them. Examples of cognitive ,social, linguistic, and physical developmental activities are included. (MSE)
